on the floor. for decades, u.s. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. this is that sort of open spaces doctrine. i'm not saying it makes it right but the government has been doing it for decades. some of the courts have apparently ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a back yard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws. you know, i don't think i agree with that. if you're swimming in your pool in your back yard, if you're in your hot tub in your back yard, just because we have the technology to be able to see you in your hot tub, does that really mean they have a right to look at what you are doing in your back yard, so i don't really accept that. i think it has been abused and something that really we should be fighting against the surveillance state. advocates say predators are simply more effective than other planes. flying out of earshot and out of sight, a predator bee can watch a target for 20 hours nonstop, far longer than any police helicopter or manned aircraft. i would say the
at the end of the last congress. how to make a law. just read the look. and i recognize that you would hardly recognize that civics lesson if you see what's happening on the floor here today and over the last period of time. but i have enormous, enormous respect for the chairman of the appropriations committee. we sat on that committee together for a number of years. i appreciate that he wanted to bring a bill to the floor that honors the budget control act. i disagree with the tactic of putting a reinforcement of the sequester into the law. it exists. we have to do the sequester unless we can head it off. unless the safety of our troops and their training, our national security, the education of our children, the safety of our neighbors, unless that takes precedence over protecting tax breaks for corporate jets, businesses that send jobs overseas, the list goes on and i mentioned it now more than one time. so i urge my colleagues to think carefully about this vote. this isn't a vote to shut down government or not. that vote will come another time. the senate isn't going to accept this bill.
of lawfulness of the illegal operation directed against a u.s. citizen, a senior operational leader of al qaeda. or an associated force. this is committee confidential but it is not classified. the fact of the matter is it is a 16 page, very hostile and -- very thoughtful and very impressive opinion, and yet, it cannot go into the public domain. i cannot ask you about some of the factors of this opinion even here and i think that's a mistake. i think the world we are now living in is so different and precise that the legal underpinnings for action really are important. secondly, it is one thing for a president to ask for a legal opinion prior to something that is ongoing. maybe even on going. it seems to me that after words, -- after words, -- afterwards, we should have the opportunity to assess the legality of that and if necessary, be able to clarify law, change a law, do whatever a constitutional legislative body does. i would just ask you to take a look at this. we have now -- i just got a note. it has been release now because it was leaked first. so -- [chuckles] >> that is one way of get
or be in a position to consider this comprehensive response to our law enforcement that has already told us what they need. law enforcement does not take a partisan view in this. they just take a view what's going to help law enforcement, what's going to help us be safer. i think the senator and i came in from that position. thursday, the senate judiciary committee will continue our consideration of four measures to reduce gun violence. this issue, gun trafficking, straw purchases, was before the committee. what i am going to do is take my original trafficking bill, and i would tell the senators who are cosponsors and amend it with a text of the bipartisan compromise. i believe it approved the language already pending before the committee, provisions laid out in legislation are focused, they are commonsense remedies, and our bill does not affect lawful purchases from federal firearms licenseees, does not alter their rights and responsibilities, but our bill was drafted to request law enforcement to give needed tools to fight against the drug cartels, other criminals who threaten our communities.
that through. the president a year ago lined up -- signed a law that says that you can be detained indefinitely, that you can be sent from america to guantanamo bay without a trial, and he wants us to be comforted, he wants us to remember and think good of him because he says i don't intend to do so. it's not enough. i mean, would you tolerate a republican who stood up and said well, i like the first amendment, i'm quite fond of the first amendment, and i don't intend to break the first amendment but i might. would conservatives tolerate someone who said i like the second amendment? i think it's important and i am for gun ownership and i don't intend to violate the second amendment, but i might. would we tolerate that he doesn't intend to do so as a standard? we have to think about the standards being used overseas. the president finally admitted they interviewed him at google not too long ago, they interviewed him and asked him can you kill americans at home and he was evasive and he said but if there are rules, he said the rules would be different outside than inside. well, i certainly hope s
. the rule of law, in other word,ct must operate in order to god protect the god-given interest to make sure they are not arbitrary deprived of any citizen.ere a we with talking wheel the sanctity of human life. whe when the interest at stake is not just liberty or property but life itself, we have to protect it. we have to take steps to protect that. and so i think it is important that we carefully scrutinize and evaluate any government program that has the potential to deprive any american citizen of his or her life without due process of law. so i was concerned, as were you, senator paul, recently when the obama administrationas leaked what was characterized as a department of justice white paper. outlining the circumstances outlining the legal criteria that this administration wouldn use in deciding when and whether and under what circumstances to snuff out human life. the the human life of an american citizen, no less, using a drone. m now the memorandum started out with certain somewhat predictable or familiarepts concepts.rted the memorandum started out byning explaining an imminent s
of the children and education. we've made sure that our law enforcement is taken care of, but we've also made those difficult choices early on that washington could really learn from in budgeting. i congratulate congressman messer for bringing this particular bill. it's a good government bill. i know the other side of the aisle is talking about the sequester, and i find it ironic that "the washington times" today has a headline that says, 400 more jobs were created in spite of the sequester. so i don't believe that the sky is falling here. this legislation requires the president to do some simple math and include with his budget, should he choose to submit one, an estimate of the cost of the deficit per taxpayer. taxpayers just simply deserve to know how much they owe for washington's out-of-control spending. after all, every dime that the federal government borrows is saddled on this generation and the next generation and generations to follow. right now the cost of washington's $16 trillion of national debt totals more than $147,000 per taxpayer. in fact, approximately every minute, mr. spe
was involved in that? do you not get a chance to explain yourself in a court of law before you get a hellfire missile dropped on your head? so it just amazes me that people are so willing and eager to throw out the bill of rights and just say, oh, that's fine. you know, terrorists are a big threat to us. and, you know, i am a so fearful that they will attack me that i'm willing to give up my rights, i'm willing to give up on the bill of rights? i think we give up too easily. now, the president has responded and he said he hasn't killed anybody yet in america. and he says he doesn't intend to kill anyone in america, but he might. i frankly just don't think that's good enough. the president's oath of office says that i will -- not that "i might" or not that "i intend to" -- the president says "i will" protect, preserve, and defend the constitution. he doesn't say, i'll do it when it's practical or i'll do it unless it's unfeasible, unless it's unpleasant and people argue with me and i have to go through congress and i can't get anything done, then i will obey the constitution. it's a out there.
nobody bought it or sold it. it is homemade, how is law enforcement in this country going to grapple with homemade high-powered weapons. what will they do when they print the 3-d fully automatic machine gun? the government agency that will have to deal with the challenges of this new technology when it happens is the atf. last month when president obama unveiled his proposed gun reforms at the white house, one thing he asked congress to do was confirm the nominee to run atf, a man named todd jones who has been acting as deputy director of the atf for five years. president obama asked congress to stop hindering law enforcement, and he called congress out for allowing anybody to be confirmed as director of the atf for six years now. this week we got news that even that part of what president obama confirmed on guns, even just asking the director of the law enforcement agency that is concerned with federal gun laws, yeah, republicans in congress may just oppose that too. they don't want anybody running that after six years. republicans increasingly make the case that we shoul
or down. up, man's old age dream, the ultimate and individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of owe toa tal tehranism totalitarianism. those who would trade freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. given the top of this discussion, the asserted power of the president to take the life of a u.s. citizen on u.s. soil without due process of law, that last portion bears reading again. those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course to the ant heap of totalitarianism. in this vote harvesting time, they use terms like the great society, or as we were told a few days ago by the president, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. but they've been a little more ex applies it in the past and among themselves. and of all of the things i now will quote have appeared in print. these are not republican accusations. for example, they have voices that say -- quote -- "the cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism." another voice says "the profit mot
law professor and government contracts law expert who was on the wartime contract commission on iraq and afghanistan wrote a memo describing all the ways in which the federal government can legally cut spending. and service contracts. it's very important especially in the context of the department of defense. in the last 10 years, spending on service contracts in the department of defense have more than doubled. from 72 billion per year to over to a hundred billion per year, just in the last 10 years. during that same time, in-house personnel costs have been effectively flat. he estimates that government- wide, 70%, to 90% of all sequestration spending cuts could easily come from service contracts. not exercising options, terminating for convenience, negotiating with the contractors not to continue with every option in their contracts. so it's not true that once a contract -- once money has been obligated to a contract that it is required to be spent. it's only when the work has already been done. host: i assume that the argument you are making to the administration. he would like to
to residency. for him, jeb bush argues this isn't about the particular but to get it signed into law. >> so do you think there's a significant difference between marco rubio who clearly is on board for a path way to citizenship? >> there is a difference in terms of the proposal that jeb bush makes but i think ultimately if jeb bush were in the senate or were the president, i don't think it would matter. i think he's showing that he's flexible. some might call it a flip-flop and as far as jeb bush is concerned, we need to do something, something needs to be accomplished. he doesn't seem to be bothered by the criticism. his position is, look, the system we have right now does not work. whatever we come forward and propose as a solution is better than the unworkable reality of today. >> we'll have more during the 6:00 p.m. hour including the possibility, he's leaving it open, that he may run for presidency in 2016. is there a third bush potentially in the run for president? we'll talk about that. thank you, jake. >> thank you, wolf. >>> two states have legalized drug use. washington needs to crac
will be supportive. it is the deal that i made. our additional cut on top of that, by law, until congress takes the sequester a way, we would have to abide by those additional cuts. there is no reason why we should nhave another crisis like shutting the government down. >> even at the lower levels, even if you -- >> i never want to make myself 100% clear with you guys, but i think it is fair to say that i made the deals for a certain budget, there is no reason why that deal needs to be reopened. it is a deal that the speaker made as well and all of the leadership may. a bill that arrives on my desk reflects that commitment that we previously made. i will sign it because i need to make sure that we keep doing what we need to for the american people. >> can you have them down here and refused to let them leave the room?

their dreams. go to today and make your business dream a reality. at we put the law on your side. the only thing republicans want more than getting out social security and entitlements is not compromising with the president. that seems to be the case to me. they are being handed this. the president said we will go with you and make the cuts and they said no, we don't want them. >> to understand the republican position you have to understand that their major objective goals one, two, and three is shielding high income people from any tax increase. that's where it hits. they also say they are for smaller government, but since they as you suggest and you do as well, don't want to touch the entitlements for ten years and then after that probably another ten years. that doesn't leave a lot, but they are wacking away with the budget and tends to fall on low income people. >> i disagree entirely. republicans don't want to cut entitlements and i would argue they want to save entitlements. that's what you see in house republican budgets that have passed the house. >> by makin
american and. i voted against the budget control act because i oppose passing bad law in the foolish hope that they never take effect. when i came to congress in 2001, the budget was $310 billion and the federal government was predicted have a 10-year budget surplus. since then become the pentagon budget has doubled on programs that have all been put on a credit card. for much of the past decade, the brave men in uniform have been fighting in afghanistan and iraq. not one penny of additional revenue was raised by congress to pay for those wars. to fight the is, absolute and total sacrifice was demanded an given for military leaders here today, men and women in your command, all of the families. they have served with honor. the rest of the american people have been asked to sacrifice nothing. they have not contributed anything extra. this congress right now is doing nothing but watching while education, public health, infrastructure, and military readiness are gutted. again, revenue was off the table. even if their results in our nation being less secure. we have an obligation as the congr

. president clinton signed even more republican spending cuts into law. the team of clinton and gingrich in the 1990s did not kick the deficit can down the road, they kicked it out of the budget. they effectively eliminated the deficit, and had us on the way to actually building a budget surplus. a surplus that was going to be necessary to help financial future government spending, including two wars that no one knew were coming. that surplus was wiped out in the stroke of a pen when president bush signed his tax cuts into law. the tax cuts that have contributed mightily to our deficit and debts. tax cuts that were, of course, voted for by john boehner. joining me now are karen finney, former dnc communications director and ezra klein columnist for the washington post. both are msnbc analysts. it eliminates history that they lived themselves that some of them deserve credit for, which was what they actually did do in fighting deficits during the 1990s, that newt gingrich and president clinton both contributed a great deal to that effort. >> right, but that's not the strategy now. the str
a severe mental illness. i was able to go to law school and establish it for myself. in terms of having other views on the panel, it could leave -- lead to an increase in stigma. my other point is that the way that we're looking at mental health services from the perspective of inpatient hospitalization, they have been looking at community-based care. host: let's let the congressman reply. guest: some people in america believe in such things as the pure services -- pierre services. they work very well with alcohol and -- peer services. they were very hat -- very well with alcohol and drug abuse. severe violence, there is high risk. the other reason that we're not having someone with severe mental illness on a panel, that is not what this panel is about. this is about telling congress people what it is like for families. that is important. i want members of congress the year from parents. since we are talking about severe mental illness that relates to violence, i will not bring someone out of prison to talk about what they kill people. we are not going to do that. that is a dangerous si

of them, and more importantly, though, is the national organization for the reform of marijuana laws, normal failed miserably to legalize recreational marijuana, but seized on medical marijuana with enormous success with that, thinking that is the -- just like they say, the -- you smoke a little marijuana, and next you're on to heroin. in this case, you smoke a little marijuana that's legal medical marijuana, and you're on to full legalization. sort of a steppingstone, and the ones that have legalized it, already had legal medical marijuana, so, you know, it's a development thing as people get more accustoms, not so shocking and all of that. the next state to legalize marijuana could possibly be new york. that is my opinion. the northern more liberal instigates and western states in particular are going to be the states most likely to legalize marijuana at this point in time. i'm not sure any states will legalize marijuana if it was south of the mason dixon line. those are basically republican dominated conservative states, and i think it's unlikely for them to legalize it any time i
treated john he had been locked up for seven years. now i speak as an amateur here about tax law, but my understanding of a 501c3 is that at least one that the church was given there are lairs of accountability. there has to be responsibility along the line. one entity is accountable to the next. when you have one individual who can put all of the other individuals in to a double wide trailer for years on end, i don't know that you can say there's any other individual than david who has any power inside the church of scientology. i think the church is at the crisis point in the future. it's headed for a reckoning. if david is not willing to come forward and confront accusers, people in the church have a responsibility, i think, a moral responsibility to address those abuses. and i particularly charge the celebrities who have been used to promote scientology with that duty because nobody else has done more to bring people to scientology. they have a definite responsibility understanding what is going on there. thank you. >> thank you. >> in the 1989, the u.s. supreme court hernandez v. th
